Yeah. Lots of former NHLers too. One survivor apparently. God, my stomach is turning.

What a terrible summer for the hockey community.  This is often a fear I have had for our boys in blue and white.  My heart goes out to the many families and friends who have lost loved ones in this latest tragedy.

Quite a few recognizable names. 

This is absolutely terrible.  R.I.P to all those.

What a terrible summer.

I want to see confirmation of who survived... This is a tough one to take in. I can't get anything done at work right now...
